Tai otoshi combinations

When working on combinations it is a good idea to take your major waza and work around it.

For example, let’s take Tai Otoshi as our major waza.

Set it up!

First work on a set up throw into Tai Otoshi, like Ouchi-Gari.

Ouchi Gari works very well as it creates the movement that opens your partner up for the Tai-otoshi perfectly.

Follow up throw

Once you have that nailed, start developing follow up throws for when uke avoids or blocks your main waza. 

There are lots of judo throws you can choose from but we especially like Tai otoshi into Uchi Mata.
